that's the Catholic's business, so f'n what if they are a major religion with assets? They do plenty of excellent charity work with the poor, world wide and so do plenty of other Christian religions.
Buying the cathedral is a Church business decision. If you are Catholic and don't like it, join another religion, dumbass! Screw your jealous attitude toward Catholic's, no one is forced to be any religion or tithe, that is listed under free f'n wil!! Go help the poor yourself, foo!

Btw, a LOT (not all) of CEO's and investors and corporation owners are good people and rich too, they earned it! - boo fuckin hoo - haha.

Ah, strike up, La Marseillaise! "Ecrasez l'infame", said Voltaire. Let the state build the Cult of Reason and the Cult of the Supreme Being instead. We can have young and beautiful woman atop alters across the land leading the new incantations. Taxes and tithing! Maybe one stop 'giving'?

And the Crystal 'Cathedral' is an ugly building representing an exchange for mammon against so many unfed people, so many innocents lost, so much time spent away from helping the sick or caring for our neighbors. To think of all the positive changes those resources could have been used for. And for a building that is dust just waiting for time. Or an earthquake.

I don't care about their legal tax status or any tired old revolution to redistribute the wealth, the OWS needs to go after congress...ALL who voted to deregulate, Bloomberg is right >>

Michael Bloomberg tried to explain that to Occupy Wall Street protesters this morning, and pointed out the contradiction between their protests and their demands:

“I hear your complaints,” Bloomberg said. “Some of them are totally unfounded. It was not the banks that created the mortgage crisis. It was, plain and simple, Congress who forced everybody to go and give mortgages to people who were on the cusp. Now, I’m not saying I’m sure that was terrible policy, because a lot of those people who got homes still have them and they wouldn’t gave gotten them without that.

“But they were the ones who pushed Fannie and Freddie to make a bunch of loans that were imprudent, if you will. They were the ones that pushed the banks to loan to everybody. And now we want to go vilify the banks because it’s one target, it’s easy to blame them and congress certainly isn’t going to blame themselves. At the same time, Congress is trying to pressure banks to loosen their lending standards to make more loans. This is exactly the same speech they criticized them for.”

(but shhhh..just go after the Republican's - wink-wink)

Obama, BLOW ME!
